Lovell and Liljedahl defeated Mark REYNOLDS and Will STOUT in the first race and beat off John MCCAUSLAND and Brad NICHOL in the second.
Two other local sailors and crew, Stephen MURRAY with crew Austin SPERRY, and Guy BRIERRE with crew Buddy CLARKE, also finished in the top 10, in sixth and seventh respectively.
"We finished just boat lengths behind the first three guys in the first race, and we were right where we wanted to be," Brierre said. "We had a little trouble in the second race, but we're only one point out of fifth place and our goal is to finish in the top five."
Olympic gold medallist with Magnus LILJEDAHL in 2000, Mark REYNOLDS now sailing with Will STOUT lies in second place with five points.
